Summary The story of central Oklahoma is profoundly American, showing the region to have been a crucible for melding competing national interests and visions of the future. Boomers, businessmen, cattlemen, soldiers, politicians, pundits, and African and Native Americans squared off--sometimes peacefully, often not--in disagreements over public lands that would resonate in western history long after 1889
